We visited this art museum on a somewhat rainy day in Tokyo and found it one of the best we've see in many countries. Currently (as of July 2016), they have a special exhibit about humans place in the galaxy and how we make sense of it. It is in four parts starting with the past astronomers, through various countries... More

We visited this museum by coincidence. We were traveling with our baby and it wasn't at all awkward or inconvenient. It's a modern art museum and it's attached to a large shopping center which made moving with my family super easy. If your family isn't into art, they can always hang out in the large shopping center. Great museum and... More

I've seen some interesting shows here. They tend to be thorough explorations of a genre or a particular artist, either Japanese or Western. It's easy to find and get to, and surrounded by plenty of opportunities to eat or shop. Compared with other museums this feels commercial (I'm comparing with Toguri and Mingeikan) and its huge resources are obvious and... More

Although very crowded on a Sunday, the line moved pretty quickly & staff graciously handed out hand fans. Exhibit was extremely good mix of old and contemporary perspectives of space, the universe, and our place within. Absolutely worth visiting.

The museum has recently been overhauled and now features an awesome science exhibition, featuring important scientific texts and instruments as well as modern art. It has collections focusing on astronomy, space travel and theoretical physics, as well as a extremely cool 3D light film thing you have to see. Would recommend to anyone with even a passing interest in physics... More

Went in June 2016, saw the Rappongi Crossing group show, which was pretty cutting edge. Some very good artists represented. Entrance fee includes the City View floor which provides a good 360 view of that part of Tokyo. A little drawback is that the same elevators serve both the museum and City View. When I was there, there was an... More

They're not kidding - this is a very contemporary art museum. We enjoyed the electic displays, plus if you're looking for a great view of Tokyo (and don't have time to visit the Tokyo Tower) you can kill two birds with one stone by visiting the Mori Art Museum. The entrance is a bit hard to find but just follow... More

Loved it at one end even if I'm not a big fan of contemporary arts. Very well curated exhibitions, even merged the city view into them.

Exhibitions change regularly and normally more than one on at a time. There is a small bar on the observation floor, plus you can go out onto the roof.
